For real, damn.

Anonymous said: In a recent study, they found that for every 100 people claiming to be abducted by aliens, 99 of them were white. Are white people crazy or are the aliens racist?

yoisthisracist:

You know what, I’ll buy that: racism against white people is as bad a problem as alien abductions.

Only racists, but yeah, that’s about right.

Anonymous said: The Economist magazine reviewed a book about how slavery built early America. They complained that "Almost all the blacks in his book are victims, almost all the whites villains. This is not history; it is advocacy." Thanks for busting my stereotype that smarmy pseudo-intellectual Brits practice more subtle forms of racism than redneck Klansmen.

yoisthisracist:

I like how those stupid motherfuckers think that saying something “is advocacy” invalidates it. Hey dipshits, you’re supposed to advocate against fucking SLAVERY you fucking idiots.

UPDATE: They recanted that odious bullshit.

Damn, I didn’t even think about that.

Anonymous said: Yo today I learned two fun facts about the dish called "Apple Brown Betty". 1) The name comes from the cook who invented it: a brown-skinned slave named Betty. 2) It was Ronald Reagan's favorite dessert.

That shit ain’t fun.

Anonymous said: One time I yelled at my mom for being racist and she told me that she can't be racist because she's not as bad as her mother, who thinks slavery was pretty cool. Anyway I don't talk to my mom or my grandmother anymore so things are very chill for me these days and I recommend never speaking to racists again as a solid life plan. Yelling is an ok second choice.

yoisthisracist:

How low is your mom’s moral bar that clearing “not objectively pro-slavery” is the best she can do?

"These Christians equate not getting their own way in the political sphere – not being able to impose their idiosyncratic religious views on others with the force of law – with brutal and unjust persecution. As America becomes more diverse and less religious than ever, white conservative Christian men are losing their disproportionate influence on politics and, because they think of themselves as the natural and deserving custodians of that power, having to share it feels like a shocking injustice.

But part of the justification for their victim routine is theological: the Bible predicts that Christians will be persecuted, so these conservatives believe that it must be true. Acknowledging the true extent of both their current and historical power and influence would generate an uncomfortable cognitive dissonance with a text that often takes the side of – and venerates leaders who serve – the low and the downtrodden.

The only remedy is thus to declare, despite the evidence, that they are truly a persecuted minority in a country filled with other self-identified Christians, which makes a mockery of the true victims of religious oppression all around the world."

Anonymous said: So that white American doctor who got cured of Ebola with some sci-fi medicine said he was alive thanks to God and that he was going to pray for all the people dying of Ebola in Africa. Except he's actually alive thanks to medicine, and praying for the Ebola victims in Africa isn't going to do shit. Giving them that fresh new medicine would.

yoisthisracist:

Every time people thank god for their random fortune or unearned privilege, do they ever think about what this actually says about their god? Like, yo asshole, how about fuck you for killing all these innocent people and double fuck you if the reason is “they weren’t praying hard enough.”

Anonymous said: Yo, people who use the phrase "the good old days" are really just expressing coded racism, right?

yoisthisracist:

Here’s a fun fact: if you are a woman, gay, not white, not Christian, the “good old days” were wack as all fucking hell.

Anonymous said: I was thinking today and it dawned on me that if Michael Brown's murder goes to trial, if the jury reflects Ferguson's population, there would be 8 black jurors and 4 white jurors. If it reflects the makeup of the Ferguson PD, it would be 1 black juror and 11 white jurors.

Anonymous said: the fuck do racists even WANT white pride for!? what are you gonna be able to do in your life if you have a white pride t-shirt that you can't do right now?

yoisthisracist:

Yeah, as far as I can tell, racists are mostly mad that they can’t force people to be racist WITH them.

From the article:

Let’s be realistic. If you start calling out all the racism you witness (and it will be a lot once you know what you’re looking at) some people might not want to hang out with you as much. That’s a risk you’ll need to accept. But think about it like this: staying silent when you witness oppression is the same as supporting oppression. So you can be the popular person who stands with the oppressor or you can be the (maybe) unpopular person who stands for equality and dignity for all people. Which person would you prefer to be?
